Communion

You are Welcome!

food-23453_640This sharing of bread and wine goes by many names within the Christian tradition: the Lord’s Supper, the Last Supper, Holy Eucharist, Holy Communion, the Mass. We bless this holy meal and believe that Christ is surely present when we receive and share it together. You may participate by receiving both the bread and wine, or you may choose to have only the bread. If you desire not to share the bread and wine, you may simply place your hands over your heart, and the minister will pray for God’s blessing for you.

 

Joining our church

All are welcome!

Baptism | Christ Episcopal Church Dayton OhioOne becomes part of the church and the community of faith by being baptized.

If you have already been baptized “in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” you are already a member of the church. If you would like to have your membership at Christ Church, please speak to our priest about recording your membership here. We periodically hold newcomer classes to help folk learn more about the faith and the church. People baptized as children or in other Christian traditions can formally affiliate with the Episcopal church by being “confirmed.”  In the event that you are coming from another Episcopal Church, a Letter of Transfer can be requested from your former parish.

Nursery

Jesus Christ & Children | Christ Episcopal Church Dayton, OhioWe have Nursery Services for newborns, infants, and toddlers up through age three.

The Nursery is located upstairs on the second floor.  An elevator is available.

Nursery Hours from September through May are every first and third Sunday from 9am – noon; other Sundays, 10am – noon. Times are extended when there are special occasions and events.  During the summertime, the hours are from 10am – noon. If you have nursery needs at other times, please let us know by contacting the church office.

Generally, we do not provide snacks for the children.  We ask the parents to provide bottles, milk/formula, baby wipes, and diapers.  Our staff will feed infants when instructed to do so by the parents.  Snacks for toddlers are also provided by the parents.

Parents may request a vibrating pager so that our Nursery Staff can notify them in the event their child needs them.

Many parents desire to keep their children with them during worship, and that is just fine with us. We also have rocking chairs behind just outside of our worship space for your convenience.

You can call us at 223-2239 with your questions.
